The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers share Camelback Ranch – Glendale. It covers 141 acres, making it the largest complex in the Cactus League.
Looking for traditional baseball grub, you’ll find authentic Dodger Dogs and Vienna Beef Chicago Dogs. Enjoy a cold beer or Three Amigos margarita at Four Peaks Patio on the stadium’s main concourse.
Upgraded amenities include two new 100-foot shade canopies along the first-base concourse and a new 30-foot by 50-foot Daktronics video board in right-center field.
The railings are low, so the left- and right-field corners of the stadium are good places to get as close as you can get to players on game days. The Dodgers enter from the left-field corner, the White Sox from the right. Fans can try to snag a signature on the paths from the Dodgers or Sox team buildings to the practice diamonds during morning workouts.
After a game in Glendale, get refreshed at the Westgate Entertainment District. The options range from standbys such as Chipotle and Buffalo Wild Wings to the western-style Saddle Ranch Chop House.
It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the outdoors and have some fun in the sun. There’s nothing better than enjoying a family-friendly way of playing golf at Glendale’s Topgolf venue. Be sure to get some physical activity in before sitting in the stadium to watch the game. Another great way to spend the morning before the game is to take a walk through Thunderbird Conservation Park or Sahuaro Ranch Historical Area to see the desert environment and Glendale’s rich history.
